Green Pig? It's Not Hogwash!

On the noon news today, I saw a story about how researchers injected green fluorescent protein into pig embryos, and created a fully functional green pig ... inside and out. Yes it's true, I couldn't make this stuff up. According to the scientists who conducted the experiment, the pig has green internal organs ... and even glows in the dark. It's quite comforting to know that while sickness and disease still plague the earth, scientists in the genetics field have nothing better to do than fulfill their childhood dreams of Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs And Ham.
